Members of the Tamil Nadu Jallikattu Ilaignar Peravai on Monday sought the district administration’s permission to participate in the jallikattu event scheduled to be held in the district on January 9.
In a petition submitted at the weekly grievances redress meeting on Monday, the tamers said when the association approached the organisers of the Coimbatore event, they were told to contact Jallikattu Peravai, to which it had outsourced the event.
When the association approached the Jallikattu Peravai office-bearers at Melamadai village in Madurai, they were told that there was permission only for the Jallikattu Peravai members and ruling party supporters.
While denying permission, the Peravai members also tore away their application, the Jallikattu Ilaignar Peravai members alleged and appealed to the Coimbatore district administration to permit them to participate in the traditional sporting event.
The district administration should encourage our traditional sport ” Jallikattu” and support the players in all forms.
